Gym1 Deluxe Indoor Playground Selected as Top 10 Gift By Parents Choice

Gym1 Deluxe Indoor Playground has been selected as a Top 10 gift by the annual Parents Choice Holiday Gift Guide.

Here is what the Parents Choice had to say”

“Gym1 Deluxe Indoor Playground brings playground exercise to a doorway at home. Recommended for children ages three to eight, the six piece unit includes the core doorway apparatus, an indoor swing, rings, a ladder, a climbing rope and a trapeze.

Our playful testers ranged in age from four to seven. And, a four year old sibling with severe disabilities managed to get his belly onto the swing, happily moving back and forth. Although neither designed for, nor promoted as, a product for children with special needs, both he and his family were delighted. A six year old gymnast in training couldn’t wait to show off her newly learned skills on the rings. The very active five year olds wanted to switch the options from the swing, to the rope ladder, etc. Play, change, play, change. Exactly what it’s designed to do.”
